Earlier this year, photographer, musician, and Frank Ocean collaborator Wolfgang Tillmans revealed that gothic synth-pop group Salem were working on a follow-up to 2010's witch house classic King Night. In an Instagram post, he said that Salem sent them their remix of his track "Make It Up As You Go Along," which is the first piece of new music from the group in over five years.
"They did the remix in Montegut, Louisiana this month, where they lived for the last year and where I took this photograph in May when visiting them," the post read. "As expected the mix is super dense, highly abstracted from the original, and has an irresistible magic and pull," he said of the remix. Their remix of "Make It Up As You Go Along" is taken from his forthcoming Device Control EP, which will arrive on September 16.
As to be expected from Salem, their remix, which Fader premiere today, is suitably dark and deeply atmospheric. Hopefully this means their long-awaited new album isn't too far away. The Device Control EP also contains the track "Device Control," which some will recognize as the closer to Frank Ocean's Endless visual album.
